Better Food is creating a fairer food system for all by championing farmers, local producers and small-scale businesses; and paying them a fair price. We stock a large range of free-from foods and vegan products, many of which you won’t find in the supermarket as they are made in small batches. Among our tasty treats and staples you will find coconut yogurt, cashew cheese, Radeks raw chocolate, Booja Booja, Hobb’s House Bread, vegan wine and beer, and organic fruit and veg from The Community Farm. CLICK HERE for a pick of some of our most popular vegan suppliers, though of course you’ll find many more vegan products in-store.

Better Food has three stores in Bristol, each with a café and deli counter. Our cafés became the first in England to receive Organic Served Here status, and serve up vegan brunch, lunches, juices and cakes daily. With prices ranging from £3-£7.50, we show that organic, vegan food need not break the bank.

The newest shop in the Better Food family is based at Wapping Wharf by the Harbourside. It is in a fantastic location for South Bristolians and those visiting and working in the city center. This store has the added bonus of a sunny outdoor terrace adjoining the café, which is the perfect spot to people watch in the summer.

My personal favourite, especially as it is only about 300 yards from my front door. Rammed full of the best quality organic fruit and veg, with fresh deliveries daily. Great selection of hummus including San Amvrosia and Natural Vitality, plus smoothies, juices, hemp oil and a first rate selection of vegan chocolate, as well as Sikelia range of exotic Sicilian pestos.

Worth a weekly visit not just for the staples but also for some unusual variations that pop up from time to time especially in the fresh section. Must visit experience if you value your food. From A VEGAN GUIDE TO BRISTOL PUBLISHED BY YAOH
